Renault-Nissan Alliance and Commercial Property Developer Unibail-Rodamco To Partner on EVs

Unibail-Rodamco, the leading listed European commercial property operator, investor and developer, and Renault will sign on 11 October an exclusive partnership to facilitate access to sustainable mobility. The partnership between Renault and Unibail-Rodamco has two major facets:

  • Organization of an electric vehicle presentation event in the Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers. Unibail-Rodamco and Renault will offer the public exclusive test-drives of the carmaker’s new electric vehicles across numerous dates from 2010 to 2012 in France and Spain. Nearly 8 million visitors will thus be exposed to this new experience. The roadshow will make its first stop at the Parly 2 shopping center in Le Chesnay (Yvelines, France) from 26-30 October. The 40,000 daily visitors will have the opportunity to experience driving the Fluence ZE, a 100% electric family sedan, ahead of its commercialization planned for September 2011.
  • Implementation by the Unibail-Rodamco Group of a charging infrastructure deployment plan between 2010 and 2012 in coherence with Renault’s electric vehicle launch schedule. 100% of the Group’s shopping centers in France and Spain will be equipped with charging stations by the end of 2012 (22 centers in France and 14 centers in Spain).

The Unibail-Rodamco Group will thus become the first European commercial property developer to launch an extensive charging infrastructure plan.



Nissan-Renault is using multiple ways and means to active promote the sale and use of future EVs. This is another smart way of doing it.

Toyota may be the father of HEVs (with 2+ M units produced) but Nissan-Renault may become the father of mass produced EVs.

Where will our Big-3 fit in?


There were many US nay sayers about Japanese cars 40 years ago, until Nissan sent the 240Z over to kick ass.
